I know, seems crazy what we all used to be able to do, doesn’t it?! I was living in Top Mossley and every morning woul drun down Old Brow before taking two trains (Mossley-Victoria, Victoria-Whitefield) to school in the mornings, and a school bus to Radcliffe and the #400 Express Bus on the Bury-Bolton Road to Ashton, then the 217 to Mossley! 12 hr days, asking the person next to me on the Express Bus to wake me up in Ashton if I fell asleep and being told they were getting off before then! Finally left Stand Grammar for Ashton Grammar and didn’t realize how nice it was to just walk down the street to the school bus and be home by half 4! Them were the days when kids disappeared all day, but you never felt like they weren’t going to come home if you didn’t know where they were every 5 minutes of the day!
